Run 4 Heroes

As the only community health system with seven emergency departments and three hospitals throughout the region, WakeMed is playing a significant role in our community’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Your generous support enhances WakeMed’s ability to care for this community, its incredible healthcare workers, and the most vulnerable members of our community.

Donations given during this time will be allocated to the areas of greatest need as it relates to COVID-19 response, including, but not limited to:

  • Increased Testing Capacity: Scaling operations to facilitate rapid COVID-19 testing at select outpatient location(s) for both the community and our healthcare workers.
  • Telemedicine & Community Support: Deploying telemedicine to area homeless shelters throughout the community – which will reduce emergency room volumes at a critical time and allow for the rapid screening of a vulnerable population to reduce community spread of COVID-19.
  • Helping Those in Crisis: WakeMed’s Patient & Family Support fund provides resources to patients and families in crisis due to COVID-19 such as food, transportation, childcare and/or housing. Also providing temporary housing for sick patients who are homeless.
  • Supporting Healthcare Workers: WakeMed’s Employee Assistance Fund provides financial resources to healthcare workers experiencing hardship due to COVID-19 such as illness, childcare expense, and/or other emergency situations. This fund also enhances WakeMed’s ability to implement employee support programs for healthcare workers during this difficult time.
  • Other urgent projects and programs identified by clinical leaders related to COVID-19.

100% of funds given to this effort will go directly to support WakeMed’s battle with COVID-19.
